CIA hid evidence of JFK assassin’s covert ops history – researcher

RT | December 7, 2022

The CIA is withholding evidence that it knew Lee Harvey Oswald, the “lone gunman” who allegedly killed then-US president John F. Kennedy in 1963, was involved in anti-Cuban covert ops just months before the assassination, journalist Jefferson Morley has claimed.

Not only was the agency aware of his activities, they never told the Warren Commission – the ostensibly independent body tasked with investigating Kennedy’s killing. They even went so far as to deny they had any knowledge of them at all, Morley – a prominent JFK researcher – stated at a press conference held by the Mary Ferrell Foundation on Monday.

“What the CIA is hiding is what they’ve always hidden, which is their sources and methods as they relate to Lee Harvey Oswald,” he said. “We’re talking about smoking-gun proof of a CIA operation involving Lee Harvey Oswald.”

According to the journalist, Oswald was involved in an operation aimed at discrediting American supporters of Cuban communist leader Fidel Castro.

Morley bases his claims on the files of CIA agent George Joannides, who worked with anti-Castro Cuban exile groups. At least 44 documents in Joannides’ files are still classified by the CIA and, he said, could provide further insight into the apparent effort to present Oswald as an “unhinged pro-Castro figure.”

The Mary Ferrell Foundation sued the Biden administration and the National Archives in October, demanding the release of 16,000 classified documents on the JFK assassination that were ordered unsealed by former president Bill Clinton in 1992.

While most experts don’t believe the trove contains irrefutable evidence of CIA or other government involvement in Kennedy’s murder, many suspect they include information on the agency’s contacts with Oswald prior to the killing. Morley has previously sued the CIA in an effort to have the Joannides files declassified, but has been unsuccessful so far.

JFK had fallen out with the CIA in the months before his death due to the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Bay of Pigs disaster, which he saw as an attempt to railroad the US into war with Cuba. The agency was deeply involved in the anti-Castro movement in the US, and Oswald, who returned to the US in 1962 after defecting to the Soviet Union two and a half years earlier, was involved in the local “Fair Play for Cuba” movement.

  1. The CIA is a “Loose Cannon” in American politics. It “does whatever it wants, to whoever it wants”, and history has shown it is accountable to “NO ONE”.
    So, “The most powerful man on Earth”, is just an “Organ Grinders Monkey” who is there to distract the American people from ‘Who really has the power” in the USA.

    How does anyone know that it is not Israel who controls the CIA? It seems to get ANYTHING it wants from the USA Government, without even a mummer of protest from anyone.

    While Millions of Americans are living on the streets, and at the same time, Israel gets $3.8 BILLION/ year, FOR FREE, and the American government provides weapons galore to whoever they choose (paid for by American TAX PAYERS (Not American Tax Avoiders) something is terribly wrong.

  2. Fair Play for Cuba was a CIA op and Oswald was a US intelligence operative. New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison’s book, “ON THE TRAIL OF THE ASSASSINS” points to a joint stock hit on Kennedy involving both British SOE and CIA. Garrison’s investigation followed leads that led to SOE operative Major Louis M. Bloomfield, Executive Director of PERMINDEX based in Montreal, Canada, and Clay Shaw, international operations director for PERMINDEX and Director of the World Trade Mart in New Orleans, a subsidiary of PERMINDEX. The movie JFK by Oliver Stone was based on Jim Garrison’s book.
